Garden City Elementary created a Little Free Library to encourages reading by providing community members an opportunity to both take a book and leave a book. Little Free Libraries have been popping up all over the country since their inception in 2009 by a former schoolteacher from Hudson, Wisconsin.
Garden City’s Little Free Library is designed to be part of the school’s neighborhood, for use by Garden City families and the friends living in the area. The Garden City student Blue Crew will contribute to community by maintaining the school’s Little Free Library ensuring it remains stocked. Garden City’s Little Free Library is specifically meant to house children’s themed books intended for readers in grades K-5.
